Recently i've been taking my style inspiration from mens street fashion as its so insanely good. I absolutely love the boyish, preppy look with layers made up from oversized shirts with turned up collars, jumpers, printed neck scarfs, shaggy long cardigans topped with a boyfriend coat, along with skinnies or relaxed baggy hip sitting pants, statement socks and a pair of loafers or sneakers finished off with a leather hand wallet or side satchel. Beanies and Fedoras are also looking perfectly on point.
I never really appreciated mens fashion until very recently due to my university module which was based on re-creating a double page spread of the mens lifestyle and fashion magazine '10men'.
Obviously research had to be done into the factors that make a successful mens fashion magazine and what unique codes and conventions different magazines have. After spending over £30 on magazines such as Homme +, 10men, Dazed and Confused, Esquire, Wonderland etc I think I have so much more love for mens style than womens. I'd much rather wear a pair of distressed loose fitting jeans, printed shirt tucked in, bold socks with thick leather brogues and a manly doubled breasted blazer.
